Abstract: The combination of controlled radical polymerization (CRP) reactions and click chemistry offers high potential for the preparation of multifunctional polymers and significantly broadens the application scope of functional soft matter materials. In order to demonstrate the strategies as well as the potential of this methodology combination, examples for end-group and side-chain modification of polymers produced by CRP methods and the use of the resulting materials in functional polymer films are given.
